If you're going to be staying in Spain's Costa Blanca this summer and you're looking to spend time relaxing at a secluded beach or cove, here are ten spectacular spots where tourists and sometimes even locals don't go in Alicante province.

Finding a quiet spot to put down your beach towel can be pretty challenging during the peak summer period in Alicante. 

The pandemic and ongoing travel restrictions mean many Spaniards are spending their holidays in the country, and the Valencian province is particularly popular among national tourists, just as it is with foreign visitors. 

 For peace seekers, that unfortunately means packed beaches and the usual hustle and bustle that comes with life in Spain. 

However, Alicante's coastline has lots of fairly unknown beaches and coves where you are less likely to encounter crowds. They may not all have fine white sand and all the usual amenities but their ruggedness and natural beauty are part of the charm. 

Here are ten playas (beaches) and coves (calas) in Alicante where you may find the peace and quiet you're after.
